PROPOSED CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR THE CLUB
INDUSTRY AS SUBMITTED ON AUG. 31, 1933
PRESIDENT'S REEMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT
(Authorized by Section 4a, National Industrial Recovery Act)

During the period of the President's emergency reelmployment
drive; that is to say, from August 1 to December 31, 1933, or to any
earlier date of approval of a Code of Fair Competition to which he
is subject, the undersigned hereby agree, with the President as
follows:
(1) After August 31, 1933, not to employ any person under 16
years of age, except that persons between 14 and 16 may be em-
ployed (but not in manufacturing or mechanical industries) for not
to exceed 3 hours per day and those hours between 7 A.M. and 7 P.M.
in such work as will not interfere with hours of day school.
(2) Not to work any accounting, clerical, banking, office, service,
or sales employees (except outside salesmen) in any store, office, de-
partment, establishment, or public utility. or on any automotive or
horse-drawn passenger, express. delivery, or freight service, or in
any other place or manner, for more than 40 hour.., in any 1 week
and not to reduce the hours of any store or service operation to
below 52 hours in any 1 week, unle., s,.u'h hours were less than 52
hours per week before July 1, 1933, and in the latter case not to re-
d.uce such hours at all.
(3) We subscribe to Articles (1) and (2) of the President's Re-
employment Program with exception of Article (3) which we amend
to read as follows:
Not to employ any male factory or mechanical worker or artisan
more than 56 hours per week and-or not to employ any female fac-
tory or mechanical worker or artisan more than 48 hours per week;
(4) The maximum hours fixed in the foregoing paragraphs (2)
and (3) shall not apply to employees in establishments employing
not more than two persons in towns of less than 2,500 population
which towns are not part of a larger trade area; nor to registered
pharmacists or other professional persons employed in their pro-
fession; nor to employees in a managerial or executive capacity who
now receive more than $35 per week; nor to employees on emergency
maintenance and repair work; nor to very special cases where re-
strictions of hours of highly skilled workers on continuous processes
would unavoidably reduce production, but, in any such special case,
at least time and one third shall be paid for hours worked in excess.
of the maximum. Population for the purposes of this agreement
shall be determined by reference to the 1930 Federal census.
(5) To amend to read as follows:
Not to pay any of the classes of employees mentioned in para-
graph (2) less than $15 per week in any city of over 500,000 popula-
995-:-33 11 1








tion, or in the immediate trade area of such city; nor less than $14.50
per week in any city of between 250,000 and 500,000 population, or
in the immediate trade area of such city; nor less than $14 per week
in any city of between 2,500 and 250,000 population, or in the imme-
diate trade area of such city; and in towns of less than 2,500 popula-
tion to increase all wages by not less than 20 percent, provided that
this shall not require wages in excess of $12 per week, with the ex-
ceptions in the above where meals are served a credit of 30 cents
per meal shall be allowed, and/or where rooms are included a fur-
ther credit of $2.50 per week shall be allowed.
(6) Not to pay any employee of the classes mentioned in para-
graph (3) less than 40 cents per hour unless the hourly rate for the
same class of work on July 15, 1929, was less than 40 cents per
hour, in which latter case not to pay less than the hourly rate on
July 15, 1929, and in no event less than 30 cents per hour. It is
agreed that this paragraph establishes a guaranteed minimum rate
of pay regardless of whether the employee is compensated on the
basis of a time rate or on a piecework performance.
(7) Not to reduce the compensation for employment now in excess
of the minimum wages hereby agreed to (notwithstanding that the
hours worked in such employment may be hereby reduced) and to
increase the pay for such employment by an equitable readjustment
of all pay schedules.
(8) Not to use any subterfuge to frustrate the spirit and intent
of this agreement which is, among other things, to increase employ-
ment by a universal covenant, to remove obstructions to commerce,
and to shorten hours and to raise wages for the shorter week to a
living basis.
(9) Not to increase the price of any merchandise sold after the
date hereof over the price on July 1, 1933, by more than is made
necessary by actual increases in production, replacement, or invoice
costs of merchandise, or by taxes or other costs resulting from action
taken pursuant to the Agricultural Adjustment Act, since July 1,
1933, and, in setting such price increases, to give full weight to prob-
able increases in sales volume and to refrain from taking profiteering
advantage of the consuming public.
(10) To support and patronize establishments which also have
signed this agreement and are listed as members of the N.R.A.
(National Recovery Administration).
(11) To cooperate to the fullest extent in having a Code of Fair
Competition submitted by his industry at the earliest possible date,
and in any event before September 1, 1933.
(12) Where, before June 16. 1933, the undersigned had contracted
to purchase goods at a fixed price for delivery during the period of
this agreement, the undersigned will make an appropriate adjustment
of said fixed price to meet any increase in cost caused by the seller
having signed this President's Reemployment Agreement or having
become bound by any Code of Fair Competition approved by the
President.
(13) This agreement shall cease upon approval by the President
of a code to which the undersigned is subject; or, if the N.R.A. so
elects, upon submission of a code to which the undersigned is subject
and substitution of any of its provisions for any of the terms of this
agreement.








(14) It is agreed that any person who wishes to do his part in the
President's reemployment drive by signing this agreement, but who
asserts that some particular provision hereof, because of peculiar
circumstances, will create great and unavoidable hardships, may
obtain the benefits hereof by signing this agreement and putting it
into effect and then, in a petition approved by a representative trade
association of his industry, or other representative organization desig-
nated by N.R.A., may apply for a stay of such provision pending
a summary investigation by N.R.A., if he agrees in such application
to abide by the decision of such investigation. This agreement is
entered into pursuant to section 4 (a) of the National Industrial
Recovery Act and subject to all the terms and conditions required
by sections 7 (a) and 10 (b) of that act.
(15) Date of Effectiveness.-AMl provisions of this Code shall
